Pours oktoberfest orange with a billowing beige head. Malty carmalish aroma as with most oktoberfest beers. This is one of the best Oktoberfests I have tried. Better balanced than most. Has a spicy flavor and sweet roasted malty tone. Smooth dry finish. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2006
had during part of octoberfest tour at old chicago. sweet malt and bread, not sure how a marzen is suppose to be but i found it enjoyable. nimbleprop (8708) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Poured a orange tinted amber from the bottle with a then lacing white head. I didn’t notice any aroma whatsoever, which was disappointing. Initial flavor was pleasing though, slightly roasted malt flavor, carmel and apple flavors. Finish is clean but citrus. Great seasonal beer. If it had any semblence of an aroma it would be a home run. bdjames29 (273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle. Best traditional Marzen I have had yet. Beaitiful natural copper color. Perfect sweet malty concoction. Very subtle hop addition. Very palatable - very smooth. Perfect finish. A Marzen done as good as it will get. A deinite repeat purchase. My full rec. BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange with a frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes, some spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty malt (meal, cereal, straw), yeast (dough) and fruit (pear, apricot). Medium sweet malt and yeast flavor, fruity with hops and a medium acidity and bitterness. Medium bodied, dry and slightly spicy palate.

The bubbles emerge from the base, then slowly dance gracefully yet timid neck, only to ensure the everlasting foam...."word"-Millla...roasted malt aromas ..dense thick head...seasonally beautiful...."damn she tastes good against the wall ....she likes the style..but only once in a while...."-Funk....."dancing on the neck"...... grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is bready and fruity with a bit of caramel in there. Palate seems slightly thin. Nice sweetness. AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - OCT 6, 2006
copper - caramel - spicy - malty - bready and molassas -- somewhat thin body, but overall, very flavorful and well done. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Pours a deep bronze/golden with off-white head. Thick quality malt aroma with a hint of spicyness. Flavor is very malty, and hint of sweetness, bready. It’s bitterness is extremely light, however it’s still balanced. However, it’s nothing great, especially compared to Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest. themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Finally, after many disappointing Marzens, success! Just about anything anyone could want from this type of brew. Not holding truest to the style, this brew is a relief in a sea of crappy Marzens. A little too much fruitiness for perfection but well done!
